here. >> steve jobs couldn't get it to connect to the internet. embarrassing, but they worked it out. when facebook went public last year a technical error in nasdaq's system delayed the start of trading resulting in a loss to market makers of half a billion dollars. and those of you old enough to know who rube goldberg was may recall the rollout of the edsel, a ford motor company automobile so awful its name still is synonymous with a costly flop. and let's not talk about lehman brothers, bear stearns, aig, jpmorgan chase. the crash of '08. beside those calamities, obamacare's computer problems pale. oh, yes, mistakes are made by big corporations and big government. and although i was for something else, something simpler and easier to manage, i'm betting this will get fixed. as for those strident partisan voices crowing over obama care's first bad round, ask yourself if those weren't some of the same voices cheering on the invasion of iraq and promising victory would be swift and easy. ten years. trillions of dollars. and all those lost and wrecked lives. have we heard any apology?
